Using acronyms and abbreviations is commonly practiced in the Geomatics industry and most of the time people just assume that everybody else knows what every acronyms and abbreviation stands for. Well that is obviously not the case most of the time and over the years I have created myself a little digital cheat-sheet of geomatics acronyms and abbreviations that I use with my work in my writing.
Here is a large collection of common acronyms and abbreviations that you may when working in the Canadian Geomatics industry.
Attending a geomatics event or professional conference is a great way to keep update about what is currently happening in the Geomatics industry and also an opportunity to have a good time while networking and mingling with others.
Many organizations across Canada offer great conferences and events, so the Conference and Events section provides free information about the various GIS related conferences, events, workshops, training and webinars that are available to or could be of related interest to other Canadians.
Some upcoming geomatics related conference and events in Canada include …

Event: 2013 Annual Conference of The Canadian Institute of Geomatics (CIG)
Date: June 5 to 7, 2013
Location: Toronto, Ontario
Venue: Ryerson University
Canadian Institute of Geomatics Conference
The Canadian Institute of Geomatics (CIG) is a professional association that represents the interests of the Canadian geomatics community. The CIG recently announced that they will be holding their next annual conference as a joint event shared with the 4th International Conference on Earth Observation for Global Changes. Over the years the CIG has built a solid reputation for hosting great conferences that provide the geomatics community with an open platform where they can exchange ideas or information about research and advancements in the geospatial industry.
Global change is one of the hottest research topics worldwide these days and Earth observation coupled with geomatics has proven to be a very powerful means to help study global changes. CIG conferences provides participants with a professional medium to present some of their ongoing research, projects and ideas relative to global change and earth observations with an emphasis on geospatial information, remote sensing technology, and GNSS. The joint conference will contain several workshops, keynote speakers, panel discussions and technical sessions.
“The conference offers an interdisciplinary forum in the fields of remote sensing and photogrammetry, surveying and mapping, geodesy and geosciences, geography, marine science,forestry, renewable energy, environment, transportation, disaster management, and climate change science.” [source: Conference Site]
The event will be hosted at Ryerson University in downtown Toronto and take place over three days in June. The last CIG conference was also held in Toronto back in 2007 and was the 100th CIG conference.
Papers and workshop proposals are still being accepted for the conference and all full papers will be published in the conference proceedings. Some papers will be selected, peer-reviewed and also published in a special volume of ‘Springer Lecture Notes’ and future special journal issues.

CIG (Montreal) – Geomatics Symposium 2011
The Montreal branch of the Canadian Institute of Geomatics (CIG) will be celebrating its 30th Geomatics symposium “Geomatics 2011”, which will be held October 12th and 13th at the Hilton in Montreal Quebec.
“Geomatics 2011 reflects the maturity and perpetual innovation that is at the core of our industry. In the current context of economical recovery, organizations remain cautious in their investments while being aware that they need to improve their processes, rationalize their spending and increase the value of their data. The term “convergence” comes to mind. Whether we think of the convergence of data (assets, procedures, results, objectives or other) or the convergence of industries (civil engineering, architecture, urbanism, etc) geomatics is uniquely positioned to play a central role in that convergence through its ability to aggregate, position and represent information.
Geomatics 2011 is a conference for managers and technical staff alike from the public or private sectors. Participants will have the chance to listen to experienced speakers present their latest accomplishments, new products and services and their vision of what’s to come. Just like in years past, you will also find a large exhibition floor with the key players of the geomatics industry. Also, you will definitely want to attend major networking event.
Mark your calendar today. Tweet it to your friends and colleges. And don’t forget to update your Facebook and Linkedin pages. Geomatics 2011 will be a thirtieth anniversary you won’t want to miss! I look forward to seeing you all at Geomatics 2011.”
